I used this nailer right out of the box to install 200 linear feet of red oak shoe molding and not one jam - fasteners went in perfectly with just the right amount of depth. No wood filler was needed! I used the 1-1/2" Grex pins for this project.
Word on the street is that it is made in the same factory as both Grex and Cadex nailers. Amazon was 30% less than these other nailers. I compared parts diagrams from all three manufacturers and 99% of parts looked identical.
In addition, I called Fasco directly for questions and there responses and customer service were terrific. They are a well known Italian company that specializes in fastening tools and equipment for manufacturers and professionals.
Pins AND brads. If you check the manufacturer's website and read the spec sheet on this pinner it mentions specs for slight head brads.
So, this tool fires up to 2" pins, has dry fire lock out, dry fire over-ride (so you can fire the remaining six pins if you want to), auto fastener length adjustment--like the high-end Grex and Cadex tools--AND the ability to fire slight head brads unlike the Grex. However it lacks the built in air blower of the Cadex. In other words, you get all the features of the Grex and then some, and only one less feature than the Cadex, at approximately 1/3 less cost. This pinner/bradder is a no-brainer.Read more ›
Slight head helps a lot with softer woods and composites. Slight head let me do a bunch of cedar assembly. Headless pins were a bother to work with. Grex says they avoided slight head because of higher jamming rates, and bigger holes. The holes, yes. Still tiny though. Jamming, no. The Fasco hardly every jams or has any sort of problem.
Considering the rather large price difference, the Fasco is an easy choice to make. Fasco is a good value, and a great tool.
(I wrote a review of the Grex as well-a little more info if you want to seek it out)
I later found the exploded view and parts lists from Fasco and Grex and they are in fact, the same gun. The Fasco also has the lockout feature that is identical to the Grex 650L.)
The only differences are the color and price. At Amazon, at the time of my purchase the Grex was $329. vs $175 for the Fasco. That is 48%! There was nothing to think about here.
The Fasco, in all pin sizes, works flawlessly. And a note to others who may not make their living with these tools. The guys with the experience get to know which pin goes with
what material and that is what it is all about. And there is a big difference between old and new work. Wood hardens with age (petrified wood is now stone). I remember trying to
pull 16D spikes only half nailed into roof rafters of a 100 year old home and it was hard with a 24" bar. Much older homes and different wood will require a different fastener.

This is a great little pinner for a lower price than the comparable Cadex or Grex. From what I have found, there are only a few companies that make a 2" 23 gauge pinner. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Aaron Cousino
After much searching, I bought this over the Grex and love it. The double trigger is nice as the actual trigger is such a light pull that it doesn't jump when firing. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Bryan V
